Agony is the literary equivalent of GoPro footage from inside a nuclear bomb as seen by the few survivors.
The nuclear apocalypse for the “Get Out” audience.
Hellraiser meets Wizard of Oz.
The Stand, The Handmaid’s Tale, World War Z
World War Z’s collection of interviews is similar to the multiple different viewpoints Agony uses to illustrate the end of the world.
The Handmaid’s Tale’s authoritarian theocratic state is similar to Agony’s threats of political and social extremism.
The Stand’s over-the-shoulder accounting of the end of the world, combined with elements of metaphysical mystery are similar to how Agony blends multiversal reincarnation with its firsthand accounting of the nuclear apocalypse.
